    Beautiful beach...
    This beach is located just opposite The Promenade. As the name describes-The Rock Beach,its full of rocks and one has to be careful while going down to the beach.. It's clean and really beautiful.. Infact the whole White Town is very beautiful, well decorated and neat and clean.

    It's very nice place. Most beach items are products of weathering and erosion. Over the years, water and air wear out on earth. The continuous action of waves hitting rocky cliffs, for example, can cause some rocks to explode. Larger stones can be worn in the city into smaller pieces of sand.

    Good option for an early morning or evening walk/stroll. One a can easily spend couple of hours walking from one side of beach near to the Mahatma statue to the other end. Vehicles are prohibited in the road and the bye roads are packed with bike parking. Visiting the place on a self driven car is not practical as the approach roads are crowed and narrow.

Nice place to roam around but very crowded during weekends. Swimming in the beach is not allowed at night but you can roam around. Safe for walking.

Because of over crowd in the May month, it is not clean but the relaxation you get in this beach is awesome, the Govt. had also made certain guidelines that vehicles are not allowed in the near roads, so beware of you parking your four wheeler when you try to visit this place.

Rock beach as the name suggests has lot of big rocks lining up the shore so it's not really accessible along the complete strip. The area around rock beach is a happening area and pedestrian only which is a great initiative. It's highly recommended during sunset.

Beautiful view on the Bay of Bengal ! The beach is accessible from the French quarter promenade . Actual sand portion of the beach is narrow but people find it enjoyable anyhow. Older persons usually use the benches..Ladies are beautifully dressed up on this beach and you see families having fun.
